Happy Tapir Tuesday! You may be wondering, where is Indah? Indah, the new Malayan tapir calf, is still being cared for behind the scenes as she transitions from nursing to eating solid food. This process has upset her stomach. She is doing well, but will remain with mom, Bertie, out of public viewing, so our animal care staff can observe her and her behavior. We will keep you up-to-date on Indah, and will let you know when she begins to make public appearances again. Please continue to send positive vibes to our (adorable) calf as our dedicated staff work to help her feel better. In the meantime, get your Indah fix and watch her on the live tapir cam: mnzoo.org/tapircalf2018 - - - #TapirTuesday #savingspecies #savingwildlife #mnzoo #dayatthemnzoo #nomnom

Did someone say brunch? Amanda, the ring-tailed lemur, enjoys some papaya. Most primates’ noses are flat and dry, but lemurs have long, wet noses similar to dogs. They can smell a favorite fruit from 1000 ft. away. Thanks to Zookeeper Melissa for the photo. #SundayFunday #Sundayvibes #brunch #lemur #dayattheMNZoo #mnzoo

Here in Minnesota, a wolf pack’s territory can range anywhere from 25 to 150 square miles. This is even bigger for wolf packs in Alaska and Canada.

#DYK the average speed for a wolf is about 5 mph. However, when sprinting, they can reach 36-38 mph for short distances.

Today's the day! Our one-month-old Malayan tapir calf is making her public debut on the @mnzoo Tropics Trail. 🎉 We can't wait for you to meet her! Zoo guests will be able to see the calf daily, starting at 9:00 am, for short periods of time as she adjusts to her new space. To celebrate her debut we're also launching our naming contest for the little one!
